2 red rings on x box 360

When i started up my x box it did the usual stuff, then as the game was about to load it made a loud noise as though it was going to blow up. shortly after two red rings appeared flashing. Is there any quick remedies i can try to resolve the over heating problem as i dont want to wait upto a month for the turn around.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

You need to buy a cooler for the back of the 360.This helps the airflow to prevent overheating.Make sure the vents in the back have enough space.

Xbox 360 red ring of death


Not a simple question.

It depends on the 360 to be honest.

Whatever you do try do not do the "towel trick"
The red ring of death is usually an overheating problem and the towel trick will cause the 360 to overheat.
Look on youtube for "the penny trick/fix"

I'd recommend you send your xbox to a repair center though. In most cases they will repair it for free.

My xbox 360 is making a loud constant noise only while playing games. please help


i had this problem too. if you bought the xbox 360 when it first came out the power box is the first version of the 360 and it will be loud if it isnt hurting your games this isnt a problem i can understand it is annoying though. the reason it does this is that the 360 is computer software so it will be loud like a computer but they made improvements in them if you buy a new power box it will decrease sound greatly i have done this with my own xbox. i hope this helps

Loud humming noise coming from 360


The loud humming noise is usually the DVD drive. It is very fast but is very loud. If you have the NXE dashboard you can download games to you Xbox 360 to run them from the hard drive (you will still need to put in the disk for copy protection issues). The Xbox should make less noise then. Try to mount the Xbox 360 on a hard surface which is in contact with a soft floor to reduce the noise travelling through your home.
If it is making a loud noise while there is no disk in the drive then take the console to a Microsoft dealer whenever you can to have them take a look at it.

Freezing 360, vibrating controller, colored lines on screen.


3 red lights is the red ring of death, 4 means your AV cable is disconnected. If it freezes up though, you have a bad DVD player in it. I would send it back.

Loud noise


Hi there, they may have changed the dvd drive.

the fans should be working you can tell if they work by just get a piece of paper and place it where the fans are to see if they blowing air out.

Or it could have been they have changed the drive. Microsoft may have added an exter heatsink.
